    Noah is historically inacurate?

    Ugh. A misleading headline on the Noah film story… “editing” implies changes to the narrative, story, or script. Adding a disclaimer title, to me, is not “editing” a film.

    So… exactly what Cecil B. DeMille did in the introduction to [I]Ten Commandments[/I]? Not feeling much outrage here.

    Lots of claims of old native American legends for skunk apes, etc, but Europeans settled in Forida in the 1500’s & they didn’t see any until after the 1950’s bigfoot craze which followed the abominable snowman craze – I know, absence of evidence & all but still.

    Meanwhile Pompei never had a chance.
